Come on, admit it. We've all seen it. Some [[ButtMonkey hapless loser]] or [[{{Mooks}} faceless redshirt]] bites it in a [[CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon strange]] and [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment unusual way]]. Maybe it was [[UndignifiedDeath embarrassing]]. Maybe he died because of [[TooDumbToLive his own stupidity]]. Maybe he had an {{anvil|OnHead}} dropped on him, or better yet a [[DroppedABridgeOnHim bridge]]. Maybe he keeps getting killed every week by some monster, only to come back to be [[TheyKilledKenny killed off again]]. Perhaps he's [[TheWoobie small, furry]], and [[WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends cute]], yet the death is depicted as {{gor|n}}y and defined as possible. Any way it happens, someone is going to chuckle... unless you happen to be a {{Moral Guardian|s}} or easy offended, in which case it's DudeNotFunny.
